in the hills of west texas. it's about 2,000 feet elevation, not sure exactly where in west texas it is, but it's out about 2,000 feet. it's supposed to stand 200 feet tall when it's done. this clock is supposed to keep time for 10,000 years. apparently the plan is that every year for the next 10,000 years, this clock keeping time will go off like a cuckoo clock and play a fresh new sound every year for 10,000 years. it is being built. it was dreamed up by some big thinkers. there are famous big thinkers that are on the board of this project like the great brian eno. they've been working on this in some capacity since 1996. in west, texas, so far it has cost tens of millions of dollars. the man who has put up at least $40 million of the money spent so far on this clock is the man whose signature you'll find here at the bottom of www.10000yearclock.net. if you can't read that, it is jeff bezos, the founder of amazon.com, he's the deep pockets behind this 10,000-year 200-foot tall project in a west, texas, mountain project. i learned this in a profile of jeff bezos in the "wall street journal."
